Amazing people doing great things locally, nationally and internationally and opportunities for students to volunteer and get involved with community projects.

Student Volunteer Army work in Ilam and Riccarton

In May 2014 the University of Canterbury’s Student Volunteer Army (SVA) worked together with law firm, Duncan Cotterill to help out in the local Christchurch community. This year the SVA will focus on the area around Ilam and Riccarton to forge a positive relationship between the students and the local residents.  Duties carried out by the volunteers included gardening, baking, cleaning graffiti and other general maintenance.  Currently the SVA, which is a club on campus, has over 1300 members. Further community projects are planned for the remainder of the year and anyone can join! Sign up here…
